At the risk of repeating myself, here is a summary of my early EveryJoe articles on politics:
Conservatism is summed up in seven ideas. They are, in order: 1. truth, 2. virtue, 3. beauty, 4. reason, 5. romance, 6. liberty, 7. salvation.
These are specific contradictions of seven anti-ideas promoted by the Left (I say ‘promoted’ not ‘believed’ for no man can believe in them, any more than he can believe in a five-sided triangle)
He then goes on to list the seven Anti-Ideas of the Left. Read the whole thing. This is the sort of intellectual ammunition you need when dealing with various Leftists, both GOP and Donk.
